just a thought
« on: March 12, 2008, 07:52:08 pm »

hey this thought smashed into my forehead (like that ball at the baseball stadium,but enough of that....) can you make mods for pc games in anim8or? i was wondering because it would be awsome to run around as charlie brown in gta vice city.

You can't directly mod games.  Anim8or is not able to export animations to other formats that would go in games.  Still, you can model and texture with anim8or, then export to something such as an .obj.  You can use milkshape 3d for animation then (there's a free trial on their website) and then figure out how to export the models and get them in the game.
So it's possible, but you can't do it with only anim8or.

well i think there are a few games that use 3Ds models, (such as morrowind by bethesda softworks) but i don't know about animation, try hihosilver's suggestions (if you can), i'm sure it works, and if it doesn't....i don't know what you'll do then

Good question. I hope you can do that in the future with Anim8or
